Indian crew roll call here!



So who is of Indian ancestry or born there?

If you wre born there, what city are you from?

I was born in Bandra, which at that time was a small suburb of Bombay.

When I was there last in 1997, I saw on BMW, and E36 M3. I know that some V10 M5's have been sold there recently, I'll probably see those next month.

Here's some info about Bandra from Wikipedia.




This church (Mount Mary's Basilica) is one of many churches in Bandra.

I'm punjabi.
Born here though... well in brampton which is actually like a mini punjab.

There are quite a few desi members here.
1 or 2 years ago we all had a pre-meet/cruise together... fun times!

We definitely have to do that again.

I really didn't want you to remove it .. I wanted everyone to see it. Then we'll see how many people you tell to lighten up.

You know the funny thing about it, its not even offensive to me. i'm not even hindu.

But in anycase, your a little kid and you dont know better.

How is making a reference to Apu, a fictional character from the Simpsons offensive is beyond me, I even said I liked the guy, all I did was quote something he said.
In any case, I removed it b/c i didnt want to deal with a flame war, due to the fact that you may be taking things too literal.

Perhaps because the connotation used in your reply insinuates a disrespectful message? I didn’t see what you wrote, but I sense sarcasm was involved---not genuine respect. But what do I know.
